Why Study Cyber Security?
There are few careers that guarantee both lucrative earnings potential and lifelong job security. In the face of the growing threat posed by cyber criminals worldwide, the field of cyber security is a rare exception to the rule. At every level, our lives have been taken over by connected technology. So-called ‘smart’ devices with internet connections are known for simplifying and improving our enjoyment of everyday life. Unfortunately, every connected device worldwide also provides cyber criminals with the opportunity to carry out an attack. For the cybersecurity expert, the challenge lies in remaining one step ahead of sophisticated cybercriminals at all times. Whether it’s safeguarding the finances of a major business or protecting the private data of the public, cyber security specialists are the safeguards that prevent anarchy on a global scale. Cyber security is a complex and challenging field of immense responsibility, though one that promises remarkable career prospects for those who make it.
Oxford Home Study Centre is committed to providing the best cyber security courses on the web. This intermediate Level 3 Cyber Security Certificate is delivered over a series of four engaging modules, each of which concludes with an online assessment for submission to your assigned tutor:
Unit 1 - Understanding Cyber Security
The course begins by introducing candidates to the concept of cyber security, along with the scope and limitations of general cyber security operations. The main objectives of cyber security are discussed, along with the most common motivations for those who stage illegal attacks online. The consequences of cyber-attacks are also examined, along with the concept of rogue software.
Unit 2 - Types of Malware
A detailed definition of malware is provided in the second module, which also discusses the various different types of malware and the most common sources of malware. The potential consequences of being infected with spyware are also examined, along with keystroke logging attacks and the importance of preventing malware infection, rather than simply dealing with its effects.
Unit 3 - Cyber Security Tools & Techniques
Module three outlines a variety of best-practice techniques for enhancing cyber security, along with several important cyber security tools and resources. The use of encryption, digital signatures and multi-level authentication is discussed, along with the importance of robust antivirus software, the use of firewall security and how to create the strongest possible passwords.
Unit 4 - Developing Cyber Security policies
The course concludes with a detailed dissection of the effective cybersecurity policy, outlining who takes responsibility for the policy’s enforcement and management. The concept of due diligence is also introduced, along with the potential consequences of insufficient cyber security training and the contribution every member of the workforce makes to everyday cyber security.
